Thankfully, MLB has unveiled the start times for each matchup.

The Phillies are searching for their third World Series title in franchise history after winning in 1980 and 2008. This is the team's first WS appearance since 2009, when they lost in six games to the New York Yankees.

Houston, meanwhile, seeks out a second championship after winning its first title in 2017. The Astros have made four World Series appearances (2005, 2017, 2019, 2021) prior to this year. They most recently fell to the Atlanta Braves in six games last season.

Heading into Game 1, Houston is a -190 favorite to capture the flag over Philadelphia (+165), according to FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
